Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP), through Toyota Marikina City extends support to the local government with a donation of rubber boats and communications equipment.  This effort aims to strengthen the emergency preparedness of the residents and its community leaders after a devastating typhoon in 2020, which put the Marikina in a state of calamity.

The ceremony was attended by Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro, Acting City Administrator Janet Obispo, and Marikina Rescue 161 Head Mr. Dave David, together with Toyota Marikina General Manager Ms. Maria Teresa Cabellon.

Toyota Motor Philippines President Atsuhiro Okamoto said in a statement: “Toyota Motor Philippines, and Toyota Marikina are proud to be your partner in moving Marikina’s people, the economy, and the government through the vehicles that respond to your varying needs. With this pledge of support in the form of these donations, we are also committing to be your partner in protecting lives, especially now that we are approaching the country’s typhoon season.”

TMP is driven by their mission to provide Filipinos the access to mobility. Now more than ever, there is a need to move persons, goods and services, striving to cut through the current challenges. TMP is ready to reinforce the partnership between the private and public sectors to help strengthen communities. Last year, they donated 30 Philippine-made Vios units to public hospitals in Metro Manila and Laguna to help mobilize healthcare frontliners.

Toyota Marikina is one of the first Toyota dealerships in the Philippines and is serving hundreds of customers a day from car sales, to after sales service, and parts; and for many years has helped expand the brand in the eastern parts of Metro Manila.
